I'm 41 and looking for a good bc method.. I have used the ring,pill,and depo shot before.. My concern with menopause coming i would a bc method that won't mess with my hormones too much.. Any suggestions?
There is a copper IUD that has no hormones in it, but its really effective like the mirena IUD is. But if you haven't had children it may be hard to convince your doctor to insert the birth control. My aunt has the copper IUD and I have the Mirena and we like both of them. Good luck finding the right birth control!!
